I’ve wanted to write a blog like this for a long time, but I’ve never found the courage to do it. Acutally – that’s not true. I started one on Blogger but I didn’t continue with it because I couldn’t figure out a way to find readers without telling my friends and family about it. And unlike my real-life blog, I’m ok with my friends and family not reading this one.
I’m a 45 year old man living in a flyover state that has been married to a woman for the better part of 2 decades. I love her dearly, but I also know that I am bisexual – probably more gay than straight. She knows this, and is supportive, but I still feel weird talking with her about it. I am also a father which complicates my exploration of this side of me.
So hopefully with this blog, I can explore what it means to come out in my 40s while staying married to the woman I love. We’ll see how it goes.
